the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communities in our district to understand what the issues are and challenges are and to do what we can to help, to convene meetings, to do whatever we can to help on behalf of the administration. an

showing no signs of ending, the obama administration is reportedly considering deeper intervention there. this morning's "new york times" says no decisions have been made. but several options are being looked at, including providing arms to anti-government fighters. a decision on whether to deploy surface-to-air missiles in neighboring areas is likely next week. >>> and a major milestone is expected at the u.n. today, when the general assembly votes to give statehood to the palestinians. this comes despite strong opposition for u.s. officials over fears that such a move could harm peace negotiations with israel. palestinian leaders view the vote as a step towards global recognition. >>> and it turns out, mitt romney is going to the white house after all. the former republican candidate is meeting president obama for lunch in the private dining room. mr. obama had promised in his victory speech that he would reach out to his rival. while in washington, romney will sit down with his former running mate, paul ryan. now, that lunch is not going to be open to the media. but, oh, to be a fly o

, the obama administration, that they will vote against this resolution. >> the president has given us unequivocal support and has said categorically the only means to a two-state solution between israel and the palestinians is by direct negotiations without preconditions. >> you've heard lindsey graham and other senators warning if the palestinians use this as an opportunity for example to go to the international criminal court, they would consider cutting u.s. aid. and there are hundreds of millions of dollars a year in various forms of assistance to the palestinian authority on the west bank. would that be smart? i say that in a sense that the palestinian authority is the moderate element of the palestinian movement. they want a two-state solution unlike hamas which doesn't recognize israel's right to exist. don't you want to elevate the palestinian authority at the expense of hamas? >> well, we have great friends on capitol hill, both in the senate and in the congress and on both sides of the aisle. we deeply appreciate their support. right now, wolf, we're engaged with a very inte
campaign style efforts to bear on a policy debate. this not the first time the obama administration has done this. in fact, this isn't even a new thing for president's broadly speaking. president obama did not invent this strategy of trying to get his way on policy. remember george w. bush after he was reelected. george w. bush took off an a tour of the country at the start of his second term. what president bush was barn storming the country with to call americans to action about was his idea we should privatize social security. >> i like going around the country. i am going to keep telling people we've got a problem until it sinks in. >> it did not sink in and we did not turn social security over to wall street the way president bush suggested. that is less a caution for the current president, that president's broadly speaking shouldn't try to involve their public in their policy causes. it seems less a caution for president's broadly speaking on trying to do that than it is a specific cautionary tale about trying to involve the public in your cause when the public hates your cause, w

, the proper way is that way. that seems to be the direction of the obama administration, the idea to raise taxes. and the government control the reinvestment interest the economy. really, there is not much evidence that that has worked. it didn't work under obama or bush, even an argument it didn't work under fdr, which is where it came from. that probably world war ii bailed us out of the economic slump, probably called the great depression, rather than that. i am a sophisticated guy, i don't have a lot of sophisticated looks on things. i just know that i have 350 employees and if you raise a bunch of taxes on me, i really don't have as much money to hire people with. and sometimes people act like i take that money off and stick it in the bank. and i'm just trying to get richer and richer or something, and don't hire people. like i'm a greedy jerk. it helps me to help more people, i can't do that if i'm sending more money to the government. to me. it slows the economy to raise taxes. >> final question, dave, despite your opposition ideology to powerball, have sneakily bought a ticket? >>,

the potential of a position, maybe a high-level position, maybe cabinet level, in the obama administration for governor romney. and that's not so far off base. i mean, we have plenty of history to show that politicians have crossed over. just take a look at your screen. this is a great example of former presidents who have reached across the aisle to take high-level members of the opposite party into their very close cabinet. so we have any idea if we might see one more of these screens added today with governor romney? >> you know, no, not as far as we're hearing from those close to governor romney, and, of course, aides here at the white house saying absolutely not. this is not an attempt for the president to bring him here to the white house to talk about a potential job. this is pretty much a courtesy call. the president made the invitation during his victory speech, said he wanted to sit down and talk with mitt romney about moving the country forward. he also said there was some things that mitt romney -- some ideas he had on the campaign trail that were not partisan ideas, but were s
enjoy joining the obama administration, sbt it? >> based on the readout that we got from that meeting, i would say so. they talked about where there might be said interests, maybe that's why they talked about america's role in the world by all of the reports. you know, if you cannot agree on any of the fundamentals about what america is, what the common ground is from that election and you heard stewart stevens, there's one thing to not believe the polls beforehand but you've got to believe the poms afterwards. there is no common ground here. if governor romney had taken a different position about health care, maybe there could have been common ground at this point. he ran away from the very policy that the president embraced. he ran away from his own record. >> usually when people say, we'll stay in touch, that means they are not going to be talking often. >> exactly. >> but karen, the republicans seemed reluctant to talk about the luncheon but senator reid seemed to be pretty happy to talk about it. let me show what you he said. >> i think this is great. none of us here have any ill wi
in the top 2% tax rate. --wasn't ended the year deal it was an end-of-the-year deal. the obama administration was looking for the stimulus measure. they thought it would be hard for republicans to oppose a tax cuts. host: the money rigidly was going where -- the money originally was going where? guest: going to the social security trust >> we take you live now to the u.s. capitol and house speaker john boehner. >> the president has warned us about the dangers of going over the fiscal cliff. but his actions have not matched his public statements. momings of his own party seem quite comfortable on sending the economy over the fiscal cliff. two weeks ago we had a very productive conversation at the white house. based on where we stand today i would say two things. first, despite the claims that the president supports a balanced approach, the democrats have yet to get serious about real spending cuts. and secondly, no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. this is not a game. jobs are on the line. the american economy is on t
. is that accurate? how do you read this? >> this has been a disaster for the obama administration. this has been a failure. the congress has been at the president's throat about this. basically what could happen here, instead of closing it all at once, this report suggests that the 166 people left can be brought one at a time into the united states to be tried. some of these people have been there for almost ten years and charges haven't been brought against them. some will be charged by military tribe unl in guantanamo. some can be tried in american courts in america through some combination. that's pretty much how it looks like it will be. it will be thinned out if not closed. there are six prisons and federal prisons that can handle these gitmo detainees. it also says that the changes should be made at some of the sites. what are we talking about logistically. >> it doesn't strike me as all that lodgist iing -- a huge logistical challenge. i have been to guantanamo a couple of times. the prisons built there are actually built on the models, the actual physical plans of american maximum securi
" is reporting the obama administration is considering options, including arming the rebel fighters there who have made progress in recent days in battling bashar al assad's forces. >>> and more trouble for president obama's expected nominee for secretary of state. susan collins says she will not back rice for the job, until more questions on the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya are answered. collins said if president obama nominates senator john kerry instead, he would have no trouble winning confirmation. >>> and breaking news out of new york. lindsay lohan has been arrested again, after a fight at a nightclub here in the city early this morning. she is facing assault charges for allegedly punching a woman in the face. police are not saying how long they intend to keep her in custody. lohan was banned from the club, in fact, earlier this year. police say the woman lohan hit was not arrested. >>> and zig ziglar, the motivational speaker/author, who inspired millions for decades, has died. his first quote, "see you at the top" in the '70s. and followed with dozens of books on how to stay
care.gov or call 1-800-medicare. megyn: well, the obama administration is today defending a possible plan to bring guantanamo bay detainees to the united states. well, no. dianne feinstein is defending her request for a report that talks about how we can do it if only we will find the political will. and as she looks at that report or and the gao -- that is an administration organization -- releases this report, we are hearing some heartbreaking stories from some victims' families who are very much opposed to the idea, families who are warning about the dangers of bringing these terrorists here on american soil. among them, our next guest, a man whose family became a victim in two separate terror attacks here in america. one where his father was killed in the 1975 bombing of franz's tavern in manhattan and the other where his cousin steve died on september 11th of 2001. steve was in the north tower working for cantor fitzgerald during the terror attack. joining me now, joe connor, to author of "the new founders." senator feinstein has requested this report from the general accounting
: dennis kneale is covering the story with the latest. i love this one. >> the obama administration renowned for the use of social networks but this time maybe it outdid itself. the president urging americans to tweet their support for using the hash tag mo farah, as in my $2000, raised taxes on somebody else. now my2k has become a way to trash obama and cheering at the democrats. they been acquired sponsorship rights for my2k, they often see paid messages opposing the obama tax hikes. they run the gamut. some talk about the sudden switch to now playing up keeping tax cuts for everyone else. others make fun of my2k origins. a few samples. obama irony, same people who claimed bush tax cuts are only for the rich now argue to keep them because they help the poor. and there is this one. my2k should really be somebody else's two k. they can government not to take their money and say take it from someone else. and then there is this one, y2k was caught by programmers failing to limit code 24 places. speed was caused by americans failing to limit obama to four years. back to you. melissa:
